Virginia Tech guard Erick Green has been named to the 2013 All-ACC Men’s Basketball first team, as selected by members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association on Monday.

Green, a member of the second team last season, was named to the first team on 72 of the 73 ballots returned. The senior from Winchester, Va., becomes the first Virginia Tech player named to the first team since Malcolm Delaney in 2011.

The nation’s leading scorer, Green has scored in double figures in every game this season and leads the ACC in scoring in both overall games and conference games. He is averaging 25.4 points per game and is shooting 48.2 percent from the field. He also leads the ACC in minutes played (36.4 mpg).

Green set a new shool record with 786 points scored this season, breaking the old mark of 785 by Bimbo Coles in the 1989-90 season. In the regular season finale at Wake Forest on Sunday, he scored his 1,700th career point and moved past Ace Custis into 10th place in career scoring at Virginia Tech.

The Hokies will return to action on Thursday, March 14, as they will play NC State in the first round of the 60th ACC Tournment in Greensboro, N.C.

  1. Globs of voters in and around Tobacco Rd. Plumlee is a shoo-in for POY. Just watch! (hope I’m wrong)

  2. I am not sure how ANY voter could possible leave a player with E. Green’s resume this year off a first team ballot. Whoever it is should be ashamed of themselves, it is a disgrace.
    I still think he deserves serious consideration for the Wooden award. His team wasn’t very good, but he did a LOT more than just score points this year.

    1. That was the very FIRST thing I noticed in the article. Pitiful example of how stupid and PETTY sports writers can be.

      I lay NO claim to being a basketball expert, and even I could see that (NOT wearing the O&M glasses). As an example, I haven’t pulled for frenchie in ANYTHING since they played the Russian National BasketballTeam (and I reluctantly pulled for them, then went and took a shower). If a guy who had EG’s numbers and impact played for frenchie, even I would have had to hold my nose and vote for him….THAT shows how stupid and petty the moron who left Green off the first team ballot really was…

      Congrats to Eric . He should be POY as well, despite and perhaps BECAUSE of how awful the team was without him.

  3. If, as you describe, he was not voted first team by one of the voters, that is just plain wrong and a setup for Plumlee to be POY.

  4. Chris,

    Judging by Plumlee’s vote and point totals (73 1st place votes, and 226 points) there had to be more than 73 voters. The maximum points you could get with 73 voters would be 219 assuming they do the 3-2-1 scoring system (which seems likely). This means mutliple voters did not have Green (or Larkin or Plumlee for that matter) on their first team. That’s just crazy.

    1. What I posted was a copy and past sent to us from VT. So if it’s wrong, then what VT sent us was wrong.
